At Home with Friends This is a classical music cd. At Home with Friends Some songs are instrumental, and other songs have a singer, like Kristen Chenoweth, Sting, & Josh Groben, to name a few. While I prefer Heavy Metal tunes, I do enjoy classical music. But this is not one of my favorite classical music cds. But maybe someone who prefers classical music may like it more than me. I think that this cd would be good to listen to while having a romantic dinner, or taking a long bubble bath! My favorite song would be #15-Variant Moods:Duet for Sitar & Violin because it has a kind of Egyptian sound to it. #12-Left Hand Song-this is a very different song. Kinda freaky! Because of the star quality on this cd-Sting, Josh Groben, etc, I had high hopes. But I just am not fond of this music. But I will listen to his next cd.

||I really liked the musical sounds, but not the singing!|
At Home with Friends I really liked this CDís musical sounds, but I didnít care for the singing. I was actually quite disappointed with this CD. I am always looking for a CD that has calming music that I play while bathing to wind down at the end of the day and I would have to skip through songs on this CDÖwhich would ruin my bath experience.

||Classic and Relaxing|
At Home with Friends I picked up with cd and was pleasantly surprised. I can imagine playing this cd in the background at a holiday party. It was interesting and relaxing and I enjoyed Bellís versions of these songs.

||Honey for the Ears|
At Home with Friends This is truly a sweet album. People walking past my desk always ask who the artist is and you can literally see the stress come off when they really stop and listen! A lot of people had never heard of Joshua Bell before so I am sure now that he will definitely be building a legion of fans. My favorite track is My Funny Valentine with Kristen Chenoweth. I absolutely adore her so listening to the velvety violin and her sweet voice was just wonderful. This whole album is just lovely to hear and I'm glad I got the opportunity to hear it.

I liked the cd but do like some of his other stuff better. The song he did with Sting, i liked very much. It is something i will listen to now and then and am glad to have it in my collection.
